  • Fashion Maven: Don’t be afraid to show off your socks

    Often overlooked in fashion, socks hide in dressers, are crammed in corners of messy rooms and often pairs of them get separated.
    Yet, they are admittedly an ingenious part of fashion. Of course, they are functional and that’s what most of us see them as.
    Socks can be made into so much more though, and can look insanely cute with outfits for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
    Before rattling off all of the wonderful fashions that can be created with a lovely pair of socks, it is necessary to establish how not to wear socks.
    You know, just to get everyone on the right track. As a general rule, socks should not be worn with flat sandals, especially Birkenstocks.

  • Los Alamos students March for Life

    Despite the rain and cold temperatures, hundreds of thousands of people flooded the streets of Washington, D.C. Jan. 23 for the 39th Annual “March for Life” walk.
    Each year, Pro-life rallies are held in cities throughout the United States on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion in the United States on Jan. 22, 1974.
    The March for Life participants’ goal is to have that decision overturned by the court.
    Fourteen Los Alamos high school students and chaperons attended this year’s walk.

    Teen Pulse staff member and home school freshman Tom Hanlon asked teens, “Who do you think will win the Super Bowl?”

  • Ask Alex: Can vegans be manly?

    Another great question arises. Unexpectedly, this question is focused on the males of the world.
    Few questions are produced when it comes to the study of men’s behavior.
    Rather simple creatures, we men are not difficult to understand. Questions are still asked however. “Why did you eat that?” “How did you get up there?” and “Where are your eyebrows?” are favorites amongst inquisitive
    wives, girlfriends, neighbors and police officers.
    Often times, these questions are easily answered via a Youtube search or a breathalyzer test, though in more cases than we would like to admit, these acts of bravery are done to prove manliness.

  • 2012 ’Topper Revue review

    Laudable humor, B-movie-vibe stories and genuine talent are the most defining characteristics of ’Topper Revue 2012, “Breaking the Bank,” and as always, the show didn’t disappoint.  
    The show begins with emcees Mireya Bouquin, Amethyst Collins, Bob Collom, Molly Finn, Kevin Smale and Kayla Suazo as they attempt to rob Los Alamos National Bank.
    Finn leads her emcee comrades into the bank to get money for college because they’re too lazy to apply for scholarships.
    Collins isn’t too keen on the idea of committing a robbery and Smale, with his oh-so-dashing good looks, is mostly along for the ride.  

  • The next revolution in communication

    Often, I hear my parents’ and grandparents’ generations complaining about how they have lost all hope for my generation.
    They complain about our addiction to technology. While texting and video games have attracted their share of criticism, the vast majority seems to be directed at that great hub of interconnectivity: Facebook.
    Contrary to the wisdom of the technophobes, Facebook is not evil, nor useless, nor a waste of time. It is nothing less than the greatest revolution in communication technology that the world has ever seen.
    It is to the Internet what the Internet was to computers. Mark Zuckerberg is no less of a hero — or a world changer — than Samuel Morse or Alexander Graham Bell.
